Labour TURCeys

Early Day Motion 2609 is proof, if ever needed, that Labour MPs will do anything in blind support of the trade unions. In what looks like a sycophantic pat on the back for union activists, TURC member David Morris notes John Healey’s spin about all the wonderful work of Pilgrims, but  Tory adds the pertinent point that if so much is done for free, why should taxpayers pick up the tab for their other activities?

Falling into the trap Labour MPs Ronnie Campbell and Alan Meale made their mark, before withdrawing their names this morning after Labour tweeters pointed out their mistake. That didn’t stop doddery Jim Dobbin adding his name today though…

Lobby fodder.

    And proof, if ever it were needed that a turd with a red rosette will be elected in parts of this once great nation.

    My Lord Kinnockio, Welsh Windbag, sometime PM (in your dreams ducky), EUSSR lackey says:

    You see boyo the Unions and the Labour are like hand in cheek or on the cheek and there’s no going back on that its the way things are and Glynnis said only the other day what way are things Nelly boy? – that’s my pet name ha ha ha ha and I said I said Glynnis the way things are is that the Unions and the Labour are like hand in cheek and Brussels – not sprouts – should have sent our December expenses by now didn’t Cameron pay up or something?

    Handycock Phd (Troughing) says:

    This is new. I am proud to announce, more corruption exposed in Portsmouth. What do people expect with me running the show down here?


  14. 14
    Eh? says:

    Failure of coherence, grammar and punctuation by Neo rendered that a fairly incomprehensible post.

    Old Blue Eyes says:

    Yes, It took me a while to understand what the hell it was all about.

    Will Bubba enjoy Huhne’s liberal ways?

  19. 19
    Go get him! says:

    I wish Guido or Neo would doorstep Gordon for neglecting his duties as an MP. His reaction would be priceless. If we could have him on camera flying into a rage for all the world to see, its entertainment value will provide some compensation, albeit very minor, for 13 years of Labour.

    Why are you selling council properties to private individuals when there is supposed to be a shortage of housing and why do so many LibDem Councillors own so many of them, including the Leader of the Council?

    If trade unions are a lobby group… and this they are … then what is the issue?
    Someone has to pay for the Labour Party.

    At first, I thought the joke was an organisation with the acronym TUG.

    I thought it was a sideswipe at all the MPs who are tuggers.

    Glad to see my comments ripping a new one for a trade union supporting scumbag are read and acted upon by TURC members here http://turc.org.uk/?p=190#comments but at the same time a pity none of them can be bothered getting involved in the comments and I am for all intents and purposes alone in fighting the TURC corner against the scum and parasite dross that also make comment.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
